Trey Johnson enters his first season as a graduate assistant for the Tulane offense.
Johnson, the son of Tulane head coach Curtis Johnson, returns to college football after playing three seasons as a receiver at the University of Memphis from 2009-11. He redshirted the 2008 campaign and then played in 31 games with 11 starts over the next three years before several injuries halted his collegiate career.
During his time on the gridiron at Memphis, he owned career receiving numbers of 40 receptions for 485 yards (12.1 avg.) and had returned 39 kickoffs for 778 yards (19.9 avg.) and regsitered 11 punt returns for 23 yards. His best season was his injury-shortened season of 2011 when he played in just seven games but ranked second on the team in all-purpose yards (664)
Johnson, 24, received his bachelor's degree in leadership organization from Memphis in 2012.
A native of Miami, Fla., Johnson enjoyed a fine prep career at Coral Gables High School where he played several positions including quarterback, receiver, defensive back and was a return specialist. He was the team's offensive MVP as a junior and was selected to play in the North vs. South All-Star game.
